Thanks Chris, it is almost like being there.
As a GWR modeller the Williton West Somerset Railway (OO Gauge)rang my bell.
cheers

Great pictures, Chris.  The Williton West Somerset Railway gets my vote - but they really do have to do something about that garish backdrop painting :cry::cry:

I agree with Tims comments its a lovely layout but the backscene does tend to spoil it they need to hire mike to produce a better backscene for them.

Perhaps it looks better in the flesh but in the photo it does not do the layout any favours.

Chris apparently Brian Gundrys four lanes railway club had a layout there with pictures or plans of the new one they are building did you see that?

cheers Brian

Thanks Chris for uploading all the images, looks like a good strong club scene down in the depths of Bodmin.

As for the brightness of the backscene's, they all look a little over saturated, but the layouts, seem correct, must be the over head lighting that is in the room.

I've also just noticed the skeleton picture on the wall of photo 7 :shock::shock::shock:  A hint of Beeching to come :mutley:mutley:mutley

I wondered if anybody would notice the skeleton - that was above our stand and everybody thought we had brought it for some reason!

The backscenes were surprisingly bright on Donegal and Williton and I thought they could do with being a bit duller, although they were not as bad as the pictures show.

If you look at the Williton pictures the guy with the camera and beard that kept getting in my way in Mr Gundry.  Unfortunately I had filled the memory card of my camera before I reached the Four Laynes train set...

I am writing this at Weymouth where there are some fabulous layouts but the lighting in the hall is rubbish so I will need to use the flash this time.  Hope it does the layouts justice.  To whet the appetite there is a model of a pier with a station on and it looks amazing.

Fairly quiet in Weymouth today but with a decent mobile connection I can post some more pictures from Bodmin.

N Gauge Clay Layout by Chris Smout and Tom Lloyd with details that you would be hard-pushed to create in OO: -

















Trehayne - Bodmin's OO Gauge club layout.  Always a pleasure to stand and watch, it being a good 20 minutes before you will see the same train twice with a constant procession passing through: -

Trehayne continued: -















Finally Plymouth MRC's OO layout.  A fairly plain run with no stations but good to see trains passing with the taps open!

Well Chris perhaps I shouldn't judge from photos but I have to say that Trehayne is, to me, the most appealling layout I have ever seen. The landscaping, the period, the unusual locos e.g. black southern diesel (just the sort of loco you dream enterprising shop owners who like to go for limited editions would opt for:roll:), the operational value etc etc - it looks just wonderful - makes me want to get on an aeroplane just to go and see it in Bodmin. Those pictures are an inspiration - thanks matey.:thumbs

Chris thanks for sharing.

Have to agree with Les, Trehayne was in my opinion the better layout of the bunch, very nice indeed. Could have spent a pleasent time watching the trains glide past, most appealing, thanks for posting.

Chris

The Trehayne layout is exceptionally good i have never bothered going to the Bodmin exhibition as i was told ot was only a tiny event isnt it at Wadebridge or am i tinking of another exhibtion?

The use of flexi or handmade track gves it the more naturaal flow feel and you can see the members have put a great deal of work into the scenery and stuctures.

it must have a considerable fiddle yard behnd to have trains going for 20 minutes without repeating

cheers Brian

Three more cracking layouts there,Chris.Particularly liked the cattle creep and the China Clay dries in n gauge.
  Thats something I want to eventually feature on my layout.

Cheers,John.B.

Trehayne is very good indeed

- the only thing that spoils it are the heads, etc of operators & the public. That is an advantage of being part of the exhibiting group, one can get photos when no one is around so they can be set up as one requests - well, that is what I found on some exhibitions I was part of here in Oz.

wow

if you could pick a couple of layouts to have as inspiration the layouts on this page would fit the bill. i love a layout that has trains sweeping through an ever changing scenery and this is something i hope to achieve with my new layout. thanks chris.

Many thanks for showing these, Chris. I really enjoy the rural scenes and the feeling of wide open space.
